Data is not a Solution to Stress and Sleep

Let me make the obligatory point before people get the wrong idea. Data is a window into whatever you’re examining, but it’s not a solution, especially regarding stress and sleep.


I’m not disparaging devices like the Apple Watch, Fitbit, or Whoop. They’re great and have their place, especially as sensors become more accurate in an ever-increasing telemedicine age. However, society has been convinced that data is an end unto itself, and more is always better. You should also read our two other blog articles (Sleep, It’s More Important than you Think!), and (Sleep, It’s not what it used to be!) to get great data on how the lack of sleep can damage you physically, mentally, and emotionally. However, Studies like this show that data can create anxiety. It demonstrated that devices that gather and provide information on sleep generate a fixation that exacerbates insomnia.


This leads me to the point that you, as individuals, know when you are stressed or aren’t sleeping well, even without trackers. You don’t need the Weather Channel to tell you it’s raining outside. You can look out the window. If you polled 100 people suffering from insomnia and gave them a choice between knowing their vital signs or something that could help them sleep, I’m confident that the vast majority would choose the latter because you understand your own needs and control your own health.


When I struggled with anxiety and panic attacks, telling me my blood pressure and heart rate were elevated would have been obvious and wouldn’t have helped. While it would have been interesting to know my medical statistics, I needed something to make it stop or at least lessen the severity. My point is that there are enough quality tracking devices and not enough healthy, natural, affordable, effective, and convenient solutions.


That’s why we developed Somulis. Using proven technology with game-changing design, we have created something special anyone can use, anywhere and anytime. Somulis stimulates the vagus nerve, the body’s master mechanism for relieving stress, creating a parasympathetic reaction that releases the hormone oxytocin and the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. It’s natural, safe, effective, and has little to no side effects.


Input is fantastic, but results are king. Monitor your oxygen levels, heart rate, blood pressure, steps, and calories. Combining data with proven natural solutions may be the next wave of integrated medicine, but remember why you’re doing it. If you’re not trying to affect change, what’s the point? Incorporate a healthy diet, exercise, drink adequate water, and use Somulis—the first Digital Supplement(TM) that can help you decrease stress, increase focus, and get a better night’s sleep.
